LoL is a 2D game, a rotating camera requires a 3D game.
What's the difference?
Right now champions are essentially flat entities, their skeletons and skins only extend as far as the camera can see. making the game 3D would mean that everything would have to be completely re-made, a lot of work, especially considering we get a new champ every 2 weeks.
I would assume that doing a cross axis mirror would be the easiest way to do this, but I really don't know how easy/feasible that would be.
Yea I understand you, Guess the rotating screen is out of question then? Thought I would put it out there because I have no clue how hard it would be for a "cross axis mirror" because I don't know riot coding possibility's or server capability's or how hard actually doing it would be but I hope it's possible. (If not there is always the 3rd "easy" option add more zoom because zoom is already in the game)

Not saying that it's not an issue, just not impossible to deal with. I agree with the axis mirror idea, but it would be complicated. The jungles are not symmetrical in layout.
Even though it might be possible to deal with, There shouldn't be
something extra to deal with because the team you where randomly chosen to be put on.
I agree Mid lane is best for purple because you can use the bottom left corner is usable hole way though the lane.
-But I prefer Bot over Top, Because your most at a disadvantage in vertical parts of the lane so at Bot if you push past your towers you don't have to worry anymore, only while defending you towers it's a problem.
-At Top your alright Tower hugging but when you wanna push or use the bushes at top you cannot see where your going or what you doing.
